"Killing Of A Sacred Deer" (15)
Weird, funny and engrossing, the follow up to The Lobster explores the themes of guilt and revenge. Colin Farrel is a surgeon and Nicola Kidman his wife; they have two children. The delicate balance of their professional and private life is thrown off kilter by the appearance of a weird teenager with a hidden agenda. (4 stars, 7.1/10, 80%)
Friday 5th October
"You Were Never Really Here" (15)
"A head-spinningly accomplished work" (5 stars, Mark Kermode) from Scottish Director Lynne Ramsey (Ratcatcher, We Need To Talk About Kevin). Joaquin Phoenix is phenomenal as Joe, a brutal ex war veteran turned hired gun tasked with finding a senator's daughter. This is no formulaic thriller but a brutal, dark and visually stunning film. Find out why it received a seven minute standing ovation at Cannes 2017.
Tuesday 23rd October
"Stormy Weather" (U, 1943)
We celebrate Black History Month with this classic musical with Lena Horne, Bill Robinson, Fats Waller and many others. The film pays tribute to great African American performers who back in 1943 did not have the chance to star in great productions. An outstanding all black cast, memorable songs and beautiful dance numbers, this is showbiz gold!
Friday 9th November
"Isle Of Dogs" (15)
This stop motion animation by Anderson is a feast for the eyes! An outbreak of canine flu makes Japanese authorities ban all dogs to an island. A pack of dog misfits (led by Chief/Bryan Cranston) help young boy Atari rescue his dog Spots and expose the city’s corrupt politicians. Some of these dogs’ acting deserved an Oscar.
Friday 23rd November
"Phantom Thread" (15)
This might be Daniel Day Lewis’ last film performance. He plays Reynold Woodcock, tailor to royalty, stars and the upper class in 1960s London, helped by his sister, played by Lesley Manville. A driven perfectionist, he meets a young woman (Vicky Krieps) who seems compliant at first but then throws him off track. The many pleasures in this film include the production design, accomplished acting and wicked sense of humour.
Friday 7th December
"A Fantastic Woman" (15)
Winner of Oscar to best foreign language film. Marina, a transgender waitress and singer, loses her partner and then has to battle his family for respect and recognition. An exploration of love, prejudice and, ultimately, courage. A film for our times.
